Open Office is a free alternative to Microsoft Office. I have to be honest that I've not used it (don't need to) but have heard good things about it. I bet their version of word will have a spell checker - may be worth a try

Spell checker will also put in apostrophes (and make sure I is capital) for you. I use Google Chrome which highlights 90% of the time wink

Google Chrome always lets you know when something is spelled wrong by showing a red link underneath the word that is misspelled

Don't use Open Office .. after that Oracle bullshit last year no one should be using it anymore. Switch over to LibreOffice instead if you want to support the OSS the way OO used to be.
